Re: Are you willing to let film die off? How do you really feel?

I presently own 3 DSLR's, and as much as I enjoy them, I find that I am shooting more film lately. I have a nice collection of 23 pristine vintage cameras, and I plan to use every one of them in the coming days, for capturing my Newfoundland landscapes. But I can completely understand the negativity toward film that we are seeing in this thread... after all, it's a digital photography forum! But ask a film vs digital question in any of the analog forums that I frequent, and you will indeed witness just as much negativity, only in the opposite direction.

Whether we like it or not, the fact is that film is not going away any time soon; in fact most retailers report that sales of most films are presently on the rise, thanks in part to the return of traditional photography classes in the high schools, not to mention the whole Lomography/Holga craze that has recently set its hooks into millions of young people.

I have to chuckle when I see some members stating with such confidence that yes siree, "film is dead". Hmmm, well, truth be told, it's far from dead in film circles. But yes, film is plenty dead in the digital camp!

I say shoot with whatever you like. I, for one, love both formats... digital for its ease and convenience; film for the sheer fun of it.
